Does anyone give a damn about the racist organization the NAACP? One has to believe Congressman Allen West was absolutely heart broken by their desire for him to leave. Be clear, he was not ousted, they changed the date and looked for a different speaker.
Could Solidad Obrien be the absolute poster child for bias in the media? Never one to back away from a comment. Congressman West refused to enter into her sophomoric games and schooled her well on the ideologies of communism, progressives, Marxists, socialist, the all like most of the media are participants in bring America down. Solidad appears to be the norm in that she is but a talking head with an ear piece telling her what to say while being clueless that she was taking a good old fashion thumping by the ever polite Congressman.
Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) was supposed to be the keynote speaker at a fundraiser for his district chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) this past Saturday. But days before the event, the group canceled the gathering and asked West not to come back when they rescheduled. Why?
“There’s a certain statement he made about Communists,” Jerry Gore, president of the Martin County NAACP, told Scripps Treasure Coast Newspapers. “That statement alone … we do not represent that type of atmosphere.”

The NAACP chapter is rescheduling its banquet for Sept. 15, with a new keynote speaker. Gore told Scripps Treasure Coast Newspapers that a spokesman for West said he “understood” why the organization didn’t want West to speak anymore.
West landed in hot water earlier this month after telling constituents at a town hall meeting that some 80 House Democrats “are members of the Communist Party. It’s called the Congressional Progressive Caucus.” His remarks sparked outrage among Democrats — Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) said “not even Joe McCarthy would have said anything so stupid” — but West later said he had no regrets about the ordeal.
